Today, UPS Driver Tim delivered the highly coveted 2013 Take the Lake John A. McNeill Awards!
They are currently tucked away in a bullet-proof vault in a secret, undisclosed, hidden location...
With different designs for each of the first three Personal Endurance Challenges every year, people have started collecting these. It is one hard collection to amass, though, as you can only get them by walking, running, paddling, or cycling.
Swimmers receive the gold coin Lee J. Greer Award. (Click the image to enter the Take the Lake Award Museum.)
We have a fourth JAMA for our successful X-TREME! ists, and then, there's the coolest one.
The CREW token is easy to collect; just donate two bucks and we'll give you one. These are great to give to friends and family who support you.
We're looking forward to handing you one of these! (Or two, or three, or more!)
Join in the TTL training fun, and leave a comment!
